No matter what New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. does or says, he’s heavily criticized. Whether or not that’s justified given his level of superstar is up for debate, but either way, he’s tired of being misrepresented.

In recent years, Beckham has been the subject of many a trade rumor, and while he’s shrugged them off, the constant questions about his character and desire to win have taken its toll.

Earlier this week, that reached a head when FOX Sports analyst Doug Gottlieb suggested the Giants should trade Beckham because he’s selfish and only cares about himself.

Allow that to resonate for a moment. Gottlieb believes that Beckham, the man who refused to holdout in the face of uncertain contract negotiations when no one else in the NFL would, is selfish and self-serving.

Completely fed up with the ongoing narrative, Beckham began to slowly chime in on this latest take on Wednesday, including both a private comment on Instagram and a reply to Giants Wire, who also took on Gottlieb’s faulty line of thinking.

Note: The Instagram post contained expletives, so it is not being shared given that it’s not safe for work (NSFW).

While Beckham is young and does occasionally make mistakes with some of his decision-making, it’s no more or less than anyone else his age in the world of sports. The difference however, is that OBJ is a uniquely gifted athlete thrust into the spotlight alongside some of the biggest names — not just athletes — in the world.

But it’s not that pressure that gets to him. Rather, it’s his relentless desire to win, which is obvious to anyone who has every so much as spent a mere minute in his presence.

Far and beyond that, Beckham has not once supplied a reason to believe he cares more about himself than a team victory. . . rather much to the contrary. Beckham’s sometimes unruly emotions are a result of only one thing: a persistent and relentless desire to carry his team to the top of the sport.

The Giants are better off with Beckham for that reason above all others. Success in professional sports is 90 percent mental, and contrary to popular belief, Beckham is not a selfish mental midget. He may sometimes struggle with his emotions, but that’s only because his desire to succeed far outweighs what most can ever comprehend. Suggesting otherwise in careless and inaccurate.
